The owners of the Attakulla Lodge Hotel refused to sell their land or allow its razing despite rising waters from a newly built dam. That was 1973.

Because of the depth, expert divers will have just enough time—maybe 20 minutes out of a 2.5-hour trip—to practice their Jordan dunk on the basketball court. In shallower waters, a nearby cemetery that was used as a location in Deliverance offers additional creepiness (and plastic skeletons).
